Community & Development

Welcome to Lios Mor Sands. Nova Scotia’s newest beachfront development centrally located between New Glasgow and Antigonish, just 90 minutes from the Halifax Airport.

A new driveway off of Shore Road leads to the 40-acre community which is planned for a 51 single family home development.

From the moment you enter Lios Mor Sands, you will be surrounded by natural scenery and towering pines which unfold to sweeping ocean views.

The first 10 homes will be released with occupancies in Spring 2023. Two models are available including a 2-bedroom bungalow (Na Mara House) and a 3-bedroom bungalow, (Aisling House) each designed to represent the creative spirit and character of mid-century modern east coast architecture and design, and are carefully positioned to offer spectacular views in every direction. The exteriors are wrapped in charming cedar shakes to offer durability, style, and a distinct, classic coastal look, and are topped with a flat roof.

Once inside, you’ll enjoy 9’ ceilings, a bright and airy kitchen with custom cabinetry and quartz countertops, premium stainless-steel appliances, a spacious, light infused dining and living area with a cozy gas fireplace, air conditioning, in-suite laundry, and many more features and upgrades in both the Na Mara House and the Aisling House.

The glass curtain walls offer spectacular panoramic ocean views, with Pictou Island and PEI in the distance, opening onto a sizable deck, perfect for entertaining or relaxing, complete with a gas BBQ hookup. Everywhere you look is ocean to the horizon with beautiful forest surrounding you.

Homeowners will have plenty of nature to explore just outside their doors. Durning the summer enjoy the ocean for swimming or water sports, the sandy beach for walking or relaxing under an umbrella, and nearby amenities such as first-class hiking trails, provincial parks, lighthouses, farmer’s markets, distilleries, and more. Get in a workout at the fitness centre or play pickleball on the court, both planned for future development. Cross country ski or snowshoe on the winding pathways and bridges in the winter, or skate on the frozen pond.

Perfect for active professionals, families, empty nesters, and retirees alike, here you’ll find endless opportunity for you and your family to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Translated from Gaelic, Lios Mor means “Great Enclosure,” or “Garden.” Let Lios Mor Sands surround you in ocean, sand, and forest and allow yourself you to rest, relax, and feel fulfilled.

Now is the time.

Development Plan

The 40-acre site includes 900 feet of ocean front and a brook that starts on the east side of the lot and ends on the western side emptying at the beach. As of winter 2021, the two roads have been constructed. One on the west side accessing the forested area and ending at the brook crossing, and the other on the east side road has also been constructed and runs the length of the lot bordering the same brook and circling back across the ocean front. Shrubs and bushes have been removed opening the shore front sections to construction. Engineering for water and connecting to the electrical grid is underway.
